Rock Walk

The Society to Save Rocks

25, 26, 27th January 2019

Time:11.00 am

The Society to Save Rocks, started in 1996, is the only NGO in the country working exclusively for the preservation of the magnificent rock formations of the Deccan which are estimated to be 2500 million years old.

The HLF Rock Walk will give you a unique opportunity to discover a small but significant sampling of Deccan rocks and understand the role rocks play in your life. The Society will introduce you to the sheer beauty of rock formations, the flora and fauna they sustain, and the sport of bouldering which can be great fun and a group activity that fosters camaraderie.

The rock walk explores the rockscape of the Hyderabad Public School. It promises to rekindle your love for the outdoors and leave you with a gentle reminder that our 2500 million-year-old Deccan rocks are well worth protecting. What better way than a relaxed walk through Nature’s museum!

Stories of Hyderabad: A heritage Walk

25, 26, 27th January 2019

Time:11.00 am

A walking tour of the sprawling campus of what was once the “Jagirdars College”, exploring the architecture, natural rock formations and biodiversity, while sharing stories of the city—some myth, some history and some folklore. Occupying the grey area between history and fiction, myths of Hyderabad form the collective narrative heritage of the city. Stories of Quli’s love for Bhagmati, and the mystical intervention of the Sufi saints, Yousufuddin and Sharfuddin in Aurangazeb’s army camp, are part of Hyderabad’s cultural heritage. Many of these stories also exemplify the quintessential “Hyderbadi tehzeeb”—a way of living that is uniquely Hyderabadi. What is this “Hyderabad tehzeeb” and what does it embody? Come, find out on our heritage walk!

Hyderabad Trails is an urban community project that seeks to engage young people with the heritage, culture and history of the city through heritage walks and learning journeys. The project employs a variety of art forms like music, sketching, storytelling etc. along with events like unconferences, walks, gatherings, jams to inspire participants to connect with the city and the larger issues concerning its citizens.
